The law firm staffs 700 professionals across Canada, as well as holds offices in London and Moscow. In the newly-created role, Allen will oversee the development of the firm's national and regional media relations strategies, as well as write, produce, and manage internal and external communication products.
“During my tenure at Lexpert magazine with Thomson Reuters,” said Allen, “I had the opportunity to work with the firm's lawyers and marketing staff, and really gained an appreciation for the culture of the firm.”
She added that she was flattered by the offer, and “looks forward to contributing to the growth of the firm.”
Prior to Lexpert, Allen was the legal business editor for The Lawyers Weekly, a newspaper for the Canadian legal profession.
